Bob Frisk Legacy Fund Benefits Journalism Program

An anonymous donor contributed $20,000 in memory of Bob Frisk, the late writer for the Daily Herald who spent decades covering the athletes, coaches and parents of suburban prep sports. The money launched the Bob Frisk Legacy Fund through the District 214 Education Foundation, and will be used to support journalism programs at every school in the District. Donations to the fund can be made online, and since the launch in December, more than $1,000 more has come in through individual contributions from those he impacted during the course of his career. The Foundation partnered with Foundations in District 211 and 220 to grow the fund and benefit even more students.
